01/20 - The Farmhouse Clash

The new year with our smoking group started with a really big bang because we smoked a cigar of the unnumbered Trinidad Farmhouse which has been released back in 2003. The humidor contained 20 cigars, 10 Double Robustos and 10 Fundadores.

During the evening we smoked the Double Robusto and at the end we were surprised to receive also the Fundadores to smoke it later! A very generous gift!

For the reviews itself I refer to the homepage of, I am sure the report will be online soon is available here. Additionally to the cigar we'd an Indian Single Malt Whisky, the Amrut Fusion. Not a bad whisky, I had worse before, but I couldn't understand the hype about it. At the first sip the alcohol (50 %) was very dominant but after the second and third it mellowed down and the spicy notes came through. An interesting alternative if you want something else than a Scotch and for sure better than the German or Swiss ones... but that's just my personal opinion.

Some final words about the cigar: a good smoke for me with some difficult parts and very special aromas, the pronounced bitterness wasn't always easy to handle... but all in all a good smoke. Worth the money? Hrmm... I'm not sure but without being unthankful I would categorize it as overprized. But that's also my personal opinion.
